It's nice to know that, back in the sixties, eighth-graders knew calculus
and college-level chemistry, as I do now as a high school senior. Funny
that I didn't learn that fact in my AP US History class. Also, I see that I
and all other students on this mailing list are poor readers, another fact
of which I was not previously aware. Thanks for your post.
